The day I saw a turtle walking by plastic trash…

Turtle in Morehead City, North Carolina. Notice the plastic trash just a few feet away from him. I took this photo in April 2018.

If you’ve read my About Me page then you’ve seen part of this story already. Our family vacationed in the Southern Outer Banks to visit my best friend from college, and while we were exploring Morehead City one afternoon, we saw this turtle walking by discarded plastic. We took images of the turtle and the trash and shared it with Litterati (if you’re not familiar with Litterati, read my post on the organization). The turtle walked back to the water, and we picked up the trash, of course. But what a moment in litter clean up and beach going that was!

I hope if you ever see something similar, you are inspired to clean up the trash and reduce plastic waste.
